Effects of Consumer Envy on Attitudes Toward Peers

We investigate the relation between envy, self-brand connection, and deservingness by examining the effects of Malicious and Benign Envy on members of brand communities. Results indicate that participants who are connected to a brand show Benign/Malicious Envy toward a higher status target who is deemed worthy/unworthy of good fortune.
